A new series of Vexta street art has captured the world's attention with its bright colors and dripping textures. Each of Vexta's works depicts an otherworldly character merged with reality, whether it's a butterfly that looks slightly human, or a skull dripping with rainbow tears.

These works are eye-catching demonstrations of fantasy at its best, and its most public. Vexta is brilliant at working in the public space to produce customized works meant solely for that area. For example, one mural is painted on the side of a long, rectangular building. To complement this space, Vexta depicted a girl flying towards the viewer, about to come through the wall, with her arm outstretched, dispelling rainbow colors. This was a perfect fit for the wall's shape, and made for an especially effective creation.

With these works, Vexta has proven that street art should not be denominated as graffiti; street art is a way of expressing creativity within urban landscapes, and in that way, street art is the most representative medium of the modern age.
